Shindiwa T242 , lost spark today. Bad coil ??

2012 Shindiwa T242, was running fine and stopped in mid yard today. Changed the spark-plug, didn't help, Checked for spark, no spark at all. So, could it be the coil ? I don't think I've ever heard of a Shindiwa coil going bad. Suggestions.

Oh, I did unplug the kill switch wire to eliminate that possible problem.

Is it the old one with the black air filter case or the new one with the red?

I'd first make sure the little wire inside the boot didn't come off the spring that holds on to the nipple on the spark plug.
Then I would double check and make sure both the bolts that hold the coil onto the block are still in place, and that the coil is on secure and tight.

The coil has a LIFETIME warranty. Parts only.

Yea, but how much labor to change it out?

I'm getting .95 oms reading from the metal part of the coil mount to the end of the spark plug wire. Is that with end specs?

Dunno, don't care.

Once again, dunno, don't care! If it ain't sparkin, with the kill wire disconnected AT THE COIL, then its bad! Simple, huh?
